When Laura Miranti was unable to find a kid-friendly photo album, which her daughter’s early learning specialist suggested, she came up with the idea to create a board book photo album to fill with photos of her family, toys, and other familiar objects in her world when she was unable to find a kid-friendly photo album. Laura’s hope is that many parents’ children will enjoy their board book style photo album as much as they have. Kids with autism, speech delay, or other special needs may find it particularly beneficial as a learning tool, or just something fun to create with their own favorite photos.
The Take Your Pix® photo album (patent pending) has sturdy pages, into which photos can be inserted from an opening in the top of the pages. Unlike other albums, these albums have thick sturdy pages that are perfect for little kids to handle (like the chunky little kids books). Notches have been added to the page edges to facilitate page turning. The photo album is 7″ x 7″ with 10 pages. It holds 20 4″ x 6″ photos and has a cover photo frame that holds a slightly smaller photo (about 4″ x 5″, so you can just trim a 4″ x 6″ photo to fit). All of their Board Book Album products are free-standing and perfect for display!.
The albums could be used by little ones to keep all their favorite photos or to record memorable events. Moms and other grownups could make scrapbooks, or customize and decorate the albums for special occasions, to give as gifts, etc. The solid white albums are great for scrapbooking, weddings, or decorating yourself. Kids would have a great time decorating their own books with markers, stamps, or markers. Board Book Albums also offer blue, pink, and yellow albums titled “My First Photos” that is perfect for toddlers or to give as baby shower gifts. They plan to offer the books in other styles and colors in the future.
We recently were given this amazing book for my son and one for his speech therapist. I’ll have to give a little love to Laura, the creator of the Board Book Albums, before giving some to the book. Laura is one of the nicest people that I have communicated with since I’ve been in this business. She must be an awesome wife and mother since she’s so nice.
We received the yellow album, and the speech therapist received a white album. The speech therapist was so thrilled that she showed it to the staff where she works. Many of the speech therapists are recommending this type of album filled with photos of familiar people and objects to encourage speech development. I am very impressed with the album. I’ve never seen one like it. The thick rigid pages and the notches make turning pages easy. I also like being able to insert pictures from an opening in the top of the pages. The Board Book Albums are for all children, but especially children with autism or special needs. They can be used to update as they develop and master new skills. These albums will also make great gifts. Thumbs up for Laura!
